Magu is being investigated ,not tried for corruption allegations
Reacting to the suspension of the chairman of the anti-graft agency, Adesina noted that nobody is above scrutiny.
He explained that there is no need for Nigerians to be worried about the anti-corruption war, adding that Magu’s travails will rather strengthen the fight against graft.
Speaking further, the presidential spokesman warned critics of the administration not to pick faults with his principal for quizzing Magu.
The EFCC boss has been in the eye of the storm following his invitation by the Federal Government panel set up in the Presidential Villa, Abuja on July 6.
He was later moved to Area 10 Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) of the police in Abuja where he has since been detained.
On June 11, President Muhammadu Buhari affirmed the suspension of Mr Magu and it took effect immediately.
According to a statement from the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, the presidential directive was to allow for an unhindered inquiry by the Presidential Investigation Panel under the Tribunals of Inquiry Act and other relevant laws.
